Centennial Hills Hospital to Begin Work on New Patient Tower

By January 24, 2019 Developments, Press Release

Centennial Hills Hospital is proud to announce a master plan project that will begin with the build-out of a new, five-story patient tower expansion project in 2019.

Phase one, valued at an estimated $95 million, will add 56 patient beds, increasing the total bed count from 262 to 318 beds. This addition will provide increased capacity in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Intensive Care Unit, Intermediate and Medical Surgical Units across the hospital. The project will also expand key departments, including the inpatient pharmacy, surgical services, and the post-anesthesia care unit. 

“As Northwest Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and our outlying communities continue to grow, our goal is to meet the demand for expanded services,” explained Sajit Pullarkat, CEO/Managing Director of Centennial Hills Hospital. “When all five floors of the new patient tower are completely built out, the hospital’s total capacity will reach 390 beds. This continued expansion aligns with our commitment to meet our community’s requests and keep care close to home.”

News of the five-story tower expansion comes less than two years after Centennial Hills Hospital built out the final two floors of its eight-story tower, adding 60 private patient rooms and over 200 additional parking spaces. Since 2017, Centennial Hills Hospital has also added biplane angiography capabilities to treat stroke and other neurosurgical diseases, an advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, and another 12 mother-baby rooms to meet increased demand for maternity services.
